The significance of State Accreditation in Nebraska's public and non-public school systems is a fact which is generally recognized by educators. Accreditation represents a means of classifying school districts according to their ability to adhere to State established rules and regulations. It is also a system of labeling school systems according to the quality of educational programs offered. The Nebraska State Department of Education identifies two levels of accreditation. These are an "A" accreditation and "AA" accreditation. Those schools which do not meet the standards for accreditation are classified as "approved".
